Strategic Military Organized League (SMOL) - IC

Postby Bakivaland » Mon Jan 16, 2023 8:59 pm



The headquarters of SMOL, located in the picturesque capital of Norrhammar, Bakivaland, is a towering structure that majestically sits atop a hill overlooking the sprawling metropolis below. The building, constructed of durable bricks, is a formidable sight, exuding an aura of stability and prosperity. Its presence serves as a beacon of hope and progress for the member states that it represents. The location, nestled just outside of the bustling urbanized area, provides a serene and peaceful setting for the important work that takes place within its walls. The headquarters is a symbol of SMOL's commitment to excellence and its ongoing efforts to promote peace, prosperity and progress within the alliance and it's member states.

Within the walls of the SMOL headquarters, a flurry of activity takes place as diplomats and ambassadors from the member states work tirelessly to address the important matters of the alliance. The building is home to numerous offices and conference rooms, where meetings are held and negotiations are conducted to resolve disputes and address pressing issues.

Then there is the boardroom of the SMOL headquarters, which is a grand and imposing space indeed, specifically designed to reflect the importance of the discussions and decisions that take place within its walls. It is the centerpiece of the building, and the room where the most critical matters of the alliance are addressed.

It is a place where the highest ranking diplomats, carefully selected by the member states to represent their country within the alliance, gather to deliberate on the most pressing matters facing the organization. The room is furnished with a long, polished wooden table that seats the representatives, surrounded by comfortable leather chairs. The walls are adorned with the flags of the member states, a reminder of the diversity and unity of the alliance.

The atmosphere in the boardroom is one of intense focus and concentration, as the representatives work to reach a consensus on the most challenging issues. The discussions are often heated and passionate, as each representative fights to ensure that the interests of their country are taken into account. The decisions made in this room have far-reaching consequences and shape the direction of the alliance for years to come.

The boardroom is the epicenter of the decision-making process of the alliance, and the place where the most important decisions are made. It is a symbol of the unity and cooperation of the member states, and a testimony to their collective commitment to peace, prosperity and progress.





The Strategic Military Organized League (SMOL) is a military alliance that is dedicated to the protection and defense of its member states. The organization was established with the primary goal of ensuring the independence and sovereignty of its member nations, and to this end, it operates on a number of different levels.

One of the key features of SMOL is its commitment to diplomatic cooperation between its member states. This includes regular meetings and consultations, as well as the sharing of information and intelligence to help better anticipate and respond to potential threats.

In addition to diplomatic cooperation, SMOL also places a strong emphasis on military coordination. This includes the sharing of resources and equipment, as well as the development of joint military training and exercises to ensure that the member states' armed forces are well-prepared to operate together in the event of a crisis.

Finally, SMOL is also focused on strategic collaboration. This includes the sharing of best practices and the development of common policies, as well as the establishment of a joint command and control structure to enable the alliance to respond quickly and effectively to any threats.

The Strategic Military Organized League is divided into two distinct chambers. The first and larger chamber is known as the General Council, which serves as the primary decision-making body of the organization. This chamber is comprised of representatives from all member nations, who come together to discuss and vote on important matters related to the alliance. They vote on resolutions, kick out members, and do all the legislative measures within the organization. A simple majority (51%) is required for a General Council resolution to pass. They may also edit the charter, which requires approval from 2/3s of the Security Council as well as a majority.

The second chamber, known as the Security Council, is smaller in size and is made up of some of the most powerful and influential nations within the SMOL. The Security Council is responsible for maintaining the security and stability of the alliance, and has the power to make binding decisions in times of crisis. The Security Council is currently composed of the Congolese Republic, Bakivaland, Galicia-Hungary, the Janpian Union, and the World of Krieg, with more members being elected or appointed on a monthly basis. These nations hold a special status within the SMOL and are considered to be the backbone of the organization.

Charter:

1. Member states must help each other in times of war, as an attack on one member is an attack on every member. It is expected that member states shall respond accordingly.
    1a. Observers aren't entitled to this war aid, although it is recommended to SMOL's member states that they aid an observer in crisis, but it isn't required.
    1b. Member states aren't called to arms in the event of a war that is instigated by a member state themselves unless a resolution is passed which details that intervention is required.
2. Member states are expected to economically aid other member states in case of economic crisis or recession.
3. Trade is encouraged between the alliance.
    3a. In addition to trade being encouraged, it is assumed that visa-free travel is available between member states.
4. The alliance shall elect temporary Security Council members who shall serve for a week, up to a month. The Security Council candidates shall be drawn from the existing General Council. The term limit is decided by the Permanant Security Council.
5. After departing from the alliance, it is expected that the charter and its requirements are followed for a minimum of 5 months to a maximum of 5 years after the nation's leave.
6. Member states must allocate a minimum of 2% of their GDP to the treasury.

As Pierre Nordheim, the Bakivish Representative, enters the grand boardroom, his eyes slowly sweep across the room, taking in the ornate decor and the empty seats. He can feel the weight of the importance of this moment, as this is the first ever session of the General Council of the Strategic Military Organized League. He can't help but feel a sense of pride in his nation's great efforts that have led them to this point, earning them a seat at this prestigious council.

He approaches his seat, the only one occupied at the large, polished table. He takes a deep breath and surveys the room, a sense of determination and purpose in his eyes. He is ready to represent his nation and contribute to the council's discussions and decisions. He takes a seat and wait for the other representatives to arrive, he is the first one and he wants to make sure he's ready when the meeting begins. The room is silent, the only sound is the ticking of the clock. He is ready to play his part in shaping the future of the Strategic Military Organized League.

Eztli was a busy girl.

From various conversations over text to officials in parliament to calls from Schloss pushing demands, our brave little hero dressed in a suit was trying to weave through the chaos, finding herself a bit overwhelmed.

However, she would eventually find peace once agreements were settled with compromises, as SMOL was seen as a "mini KTO" in some respect.

She would wander through the building, taking in the sights and free coffee (spiked with liquor from her flask) before she reached the boardroom, taking her seat as her long flowing black hair was draped upon her like a cape, two brown eyes looking around the (mostly) vacant room, as her caramel skin seemed to compliment the table which contrasted sharply against her black suit, white shirt, black tie and black shoes, paired to black pants. Of course, she would slip on white gloves, just to hint at some degree of innocence, even if the country would rather have endless war than a long lasting peace.

The man who would represent the Kingdom of Congo in Bakivaland's freshly created Strategic Military Organized League, or SMOL for short, was Hans Khangal. Hans was a newcomer on the international scene, and his name reflected that. The Congo began the process of updating names to facilitate ties with the outside world, and because he was just 23 years old, he fell into the middle group. Old names include Mwebu Kangu and Jonga Ronga, middle names include names with one easy and one difficult name, and modern names are entirely normalized.

He would enter the meeting room and sit down, contemplating something.

There was one thing that was totally wrong ever since Khaleel Saami stepped off the airplane onto Bakivish soil: it wasn't humid.

His career as a top diplomat rarely saw him travel to places in the Arctic Ocean that were naturally home to cold, dry climates. Although the tropical warmth of his homeland at the equator was 10.000 km away, he wasn't going to let anything like the weather impede his duty to represent the Federation in this newly founded alliance; which mostly meant striving to preserve peace as per official foreign policy. It is a noble honour to serve your country, and he would always do it to the best of his abilities. Furthermore, because Malaya-Nusantara was still an observer state, he had been instructed to report back whether it would be in his nation's interests to become a fully fledged member of SMOL.

Dressed in a suit with a blue tie and wearing the iconic songkok, Khaleel made his way to his delegation's table and took a seat.

The German Representative Hans von Wangenheim would arrive at Bankivaland International Airport on a Global 8000 Jet and would be escorted by 7 German soldiers and 7 other German Secret Service Security, where he would enter an armored Black Porche, escorted by 5 German military cars, which were placed to escort him for security (Every German diplomat has his own escort), the Porch where he was sitting stopped in front of the SMOL Building and the soldiers and Security of the Secret Service, would stay outside, to protect the Entrance of the Building.
Hans would enter through the beautiful front door of the Building and would take the elevator that would take him to the floor where the Meeting of SMOL members would be, when the Elevator door opened again, he left the Elevator and walked calmly towards the room of meetings, he calmly opened the door and would sit in the chair where there was a plaque with his name and the flag of the German Empire and would sit calmly in the leather chair, before snapping the fingers of his hands and introducing himself.

´´Greetings gentlemen, I am Hans von Wangenheim but you can just call me Hans if you want, representative of the German Empire, it is an honor for me to be here in this room with you and I hope that this alliance will be a firm and prosperous Alliance.´´

German Empire takes more Aggressive stance against Marajarbia and ODP and begins to seize any ship in the German sea or plane from Marajarbia in the Air or on German soil, while the German army that is spread around the world receives orders to be ready for possible and future conflict between the Reich and the ODP (if it occurs)

As Ambassador Nordheim sat comfortably in his chair, he observed the other ambassadors entering the boardroom, each taking their designated seats around the large conference table. With a subtle adjustment to his tie, he made sure to present a polished and professional appearance before beginning to speak.

"Welcome, esteemed colleagues," he began, his voice commanding attention. "We are gathered here today for the inaugural session of the SMOL General Council. I trust that you all have had a pleasant journey and are ready to commence our discussions.

As we begin, I would like to open the floor for any ideas or suggestions on what should be our first topic of discussion. I am eager to hear your thoughts and insights on this matter." He paused, allowing for any input from the other ambassadors before continuing with the agenda.

Ambassador Boone entered the chambers and sat down, pulling out all his necessary documents, adjusting his microphone and leaning in to listen to todays business. It was a new day with the rise of SMOL and one Peter Boone wanted to enrich. He was a heavy set man with a mustache and smelt like tobacco from the cigars he would smoke on his breaks.

Eztli Jimenez adjusts her tie, before speaking up as she took out a tablet with the day's orders from the Gonswanzan parliament... Or rather, a certain family.

Rep. Jimenez: "Representative Eztli Jimenez, reporting! I'd like to say, it's an honor to be here to represent Gonswanza, but for the first order of minor business, perhaps we can propose a mutual defense pact as our first resolution? Despite the charter, said charter does fail to organize, much less mandate, a rapid response force that can be called upon at any time should any one member fall under attack from a hostile force outside of the alliance. Hence, it would be a sound idea to create one as the first order of business, for a first resolution."

The Armed Republic of Gonswanza
Represntative Eztli Jimenez




SMOL Rapid Reponse Force

[Resolution Number: I]


This Council,

In compliance with the mutual defensive goals of the organization,

Intends to create a rapid response force to enforce such goals, to protect member states from hostile parties and ensure the sovereignty of such members even in times of war. Hence, with the creation and acceptance of this document, a rapid response force, hence known as "Task Force Smol (TFS)" shall be created with volunteer forces from members of SMOL. This resolution, however, will not protect or apply to observers, who are exempt from SMOL and thus do not fall under SMOL's protections and laws. Such a task force, however, shall not be used offensively, and shall remain purely defensive in nature, so as to fulfil SMOL's defensive military goals beyond the more offensive individual goals of individual member states.

Signed,


Eztli Jimenez, Armed Republic of Gonswanza

Iron Lord Muur arrives. He's wearing a nice suit, and a dimmed helmet to cover his face, none of his physical features show except for his hands. He carried a folder with him, which he had opened to start jotting down some notes.

"Good Afternoon, representatives, I am Muur, Iron Lord of Wolfstruppen. It is an honor to be here, and I would like to thank everyone for being very welcoming." He says this while looking around the room for the Krieg representative. "Either way, I do believe that it is right to claim that the charter lacks some commands on mutual defense. Hence, I do believe we should amend such."
My nation does NOT reflect my views IRL, it is merely my interpretation of a leader I choose to be within my nation.

Boone noticed the Wolftruppen rep immediately and thought it very strange this man was allowed to walk into the building with a helmet covering his face. It was not only strange but slightly unnerving, and in his professional opinion, inappropriate. Mr. Boone made a note of this for a future complaint.
